Lovely Stamford......

During the half term holiday, we enjoyed a day out in lovely Stamford, not to visit anywhere in particular, but just really because we had been told what a great market the town holds on a Friday. And yes it does have a great market, the day we visited, the fortnightly Farmers Market was on, we came away with lovely breads, homemade jams and chutney aswell as homemade fudge and a great bunch of flowers (bliss).....Aswell as the market there are a good range of shops, aswell as a great trail of charity shops ( always a winner) We enjoyed a lovely lunch in The Tobie Norris pub

Lovely vintage style interior......






Great Street Entertainment!

Whilst there I came across this picture in a little shop opposite the Tobie Norris, I fell in love with it straight away, and luckily still had some birthday money to spend, so indulged in a little treat...

I Still really love it! Very Charleston, don't you think......
Also there are lots of lovely new items over on the website, including Christmas baubles, pretty tablecloths and cosy blankets aswell as a great selection of vintage books, and much more....
Have a great week.......

Apple Picking at Sandringham......

On a glorious sunny Sunday morning we headed over to Sandringham, for a spot of apple picking, it didn't take long, but was well worth the drive. And as my son said, as he was picking off the trees "It was well worth coming for this, wasn't it" it just goes to show that not everything in a childs life has to be money and technology driven. We now have plenty of stored apples to use over the coming months..........



Apple trees are so pretty, I love their craggy branches....



There is plenty to do and see at Sandringham, aswell as the house gardens and museum, which we didn't visit this time, as we had taken our dog , there are woodland walks, a gift shop, restaurant, an outdoor picnic area and plenty of room for children to enjoy bike rides and ball games. We were also lucky to find the Farmers Market there. We then drove up the coast to Hunstanton for lunch and a walk on the beach. All in all a lovely day out, which we hope to repeat next year.......
